American Family Children’s Hospital (AFCH) is a comprehensive pediatric medical and surgical center featuring nationally recognized pediatric specialists in a wide range of fields.

The University of Wisconsin Pediatric Emergency Medicine program has enjoyed incredible growth, having recently opened a new 11-bed Pediatric Emergency Department in the fall of 2016. Residents and medical students work directly with fellowship-trained PEM physicians and a team of pediatric emergency nurses and child life specialists to treat children with emergent medical needs.

We pride ourselves in providing high quality, efficient patient- and family-centered care; leading in novel pain management strategies and reducing anxiety in children. Being part of the American Family Children's Hospital, we are a Level I pediatric trauma and burn center and have an active pediatric critical care transport team, as well as a collaborative relationship with our PICU and NICU.
